The remote and isolated health workforce frequently identify that they feel insufficiently trained and skilled to manage people presenting with acute mental health issues, substance use, suicidal behaviours and episodes of acute distress. This course aims to build participant knowledge, skills and confidence in responding to such presentations.
The Mental Health Emergencies (MHE) course is designed to enable remote health staff to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to respond with confidence when encountering clients presenting with acute mental health issues, substance use, suicidal behaviour or episodes of acute distress.
The MHE course is designed to meet the learning needs of the remote and isolated health workforce (Nurses, Midwives, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Practitioners, Paramedics and Medical Officers) who assess and manage clients with mental health needs, substance use or episodes of acute distress.
The course can be modified according to needs of the health service and be delivered on an organisational basis.
If you have any queries about the course or its relevance to your practice, submit an enquiry here.
The MHE course uses a blended learning approach:
Our alternative MHE program for 100% online attendance is also available.
For a private face to face course, please submit an enquiry here for further information.
All participants attending a face-to-face workshop will be required to show evidence of their COVID-19 vaccination status upon entry to the course venue. A minimum of two vaccine doses is required. However, where jurisdictions implement public health orders for three doses this will be applied.
